Very nice Slaninka, blue/cyan isn't my personal preference but that looks pretty classy.

We present:
Linux Mint 9 Isadora Peppermint OS 9: in green



While I do quite like that theme combination, I would never actually use such a bright wallpaper under regular circumstances. I tend to stick with grayscale images of beaches/landscapes or guitars. Just wanted to exaggerate the resemblance to that other mint 
Probs a special place in candied-OS Hell for me after this  :D

Noice, docR.

Personally, I like green themes, but it's like waving a cape in front of a bull, when PCNoSleep sees them.

So, now I stick with safer colors...  :D

So I take it, VinDSL, you suspect that PCNetSpec probably wouldn't be too fond of the Linux Peppermint OS/ Linux Mint dragonfly combination look -- ESPECIALLY if he noticed that it was somewhat on the green side of things in terms of color! :D

[EDIT]
On the other hand, maybe not! ;)

[T]here are a lot of people happily running Peppermint ICE which hasn't been receiving ANY updates for a while now .. and I personally would STILL consider that MUCH more secure than any version of Windows with up-to-date AV/Anti-malware ;)

That's what I was waiting for!!  But even I have difficulty reconciling the iconographies of the two distributions together.  That said, they're still two of the most user-friendly distributions I've seen yet, and both Peppermint and Mint (Cinnamon edition) are works of art.  Different approaches, yes, but works of art.  On both the I's are dotted and the T's are crossed.  Both distributions are polished and attentive to details.  In Peppermint's case, our DE is an improvement upon stock Xfce, -- esp. with the removal of needless redundancies.  While Mint's Cinnamon edition is an improvement upon GNOME 3 in favor of user-friendliness for the ordinary guy and gal.:)

Personally I think Peppermint's panel and menu are easier to work with that Cinnamon's panel and menu -- after configuration!  Out of the box I think Cinnamon's DE is easier to understand if coming directly from Windows.  There's next to no configuring to do with Cinnamon, and THAT is Cinnamon's DE's virtue.  On the other hand, if you take about 5-10 minutes to configure Peppermint's menu and panel, then, after that, EVERYTHING is easier to do in Peppermint from then on.  And, THAT is our DE's virtue. 

Both ways are good.  They're just two different approaches. ;)

Alright, I've had my fun. Back to the team color.


Steve Jobs once made a remark about his Aqua interface (infamous figure for you hippies ik, but he's dead. lighten up). That he wanted users to have the urge to "lick" the UI before them. I feel this color combination kind of takes that philosophy to the extreme. I feel like lighting one of my scented candles and stuffing my face with mints and coffee. Pull out a nice book  :D
Eager to get this installed on physical hardware again.
